Lean Supply Chain game
 

Lean Supply Chain

 

Optimize your supply chain with this Lean Supply Chain game!

The game simulates a complete supply chain and illustrates the effects of collaboration, exchange of information, JIT (just-in-time), VMI (vendor managed inventories), synchronized planning and cross-docking.

 
 

About the Supply Chain game

 

To be competitive, organizations needs to focus on the complete supply chain, not only their own business.

It is increasingly important that the supply chain the business is part of is effective.

Supply chains are complex. The problem is that the working if individual companies along a supply chain are often invisible to the other companies along the chain.

By looking at the whole supply chain the potentials, problems and possibilities will be visible.

The game aims to build a deep insight of the complexity of the entire supply chain by simulating the performance of the customer – retailer – distributor – manufacturer – supplier, as illustrated in the process map:

statistikk-og-analyse

The effect of decisions and activities taken by each actor can be seen and discussed in a non-threatening but fun way.

Key figures (KPIs) for the various actors are followed up. The effect of the participants' decisions and activities are visualized and discussed in the group.

 

Purpose of the game

 

The participants will have a common understanding of:

  • The supply chains challenges and opportunities
  • Industrial dynamics (fluctuations in demand)
  • Tools and methods to make the supply chain more efficient

Tools and methods that are covered are Pull, EDI (electronic data interchange), flexibility, Lead time reduction, VMI (vendor managed inventory), Cross-docking and EPOS (electronic point of sales).

The game is developed by Revere in Sweden and is used both by logistics consultants and universities for training purposes.

Three points distinguish this game from others – participants are involved in the actual decision-making, multiple products, and uncertain demands. The game is therefore closer to reality than other simpler games. This will stimulate the participants to create a vision for their own organization’s role in their supply chains.
